    My first impression was YAY! The restaurant was very busy, which is always a good sign, this also made it fairly noisy (but it didn't really matter). There was a great deal of food & drink choices and what we ate & drank was awesome. Prices were ok, but that always depends on your own personal income & budget. I will definitely be going back to try the bottomless brunch!

    The food was fantastic. Maybe a tad pricey but definitely worth it. The atmosphere was nice and you have a wonderful view of Flinders Street Station from the window. My only gripe was the service wasn't great. The waitress was lovely but there simply wasn't enough staff. We waited 30 minutes for someone to collect our plates after we were finished. Overall I really enjoyed this place and would definitely recommend it.

    Table not ready although we were 15 mins late. Table was squeezed into a corner barely room to sit down. Seafood platter. Fish dry, octopus was rock hard.

    The food was delicious but the serving size was very small. We ordered the $120 seafood platter but it was not value for money and left us hungry. We ordered a serving of chips to fill up. I had eaten there before and was left disappointed.

    The food was really good. However, we had to wait around 45 minutes because the waiter forgot transfer our order to the kitchen. Also we asked lukumades dessert that's is supposed to have 8 balls but we received 7. To conclude, we asked for an additional bottle with water and again we have to wait more than 15 minutes for it and never receive it, so we decide to leave without drinking the water. Most attention should have been put in the customers service.

    There's nowhere better for dinner before the show - they even have a special menu. Greek music on a Saturday night is fab. Last night I was even offered a shot of ouzo, gratis. 😊😊

    One of only a few venues open on a Monday evening at present, Yassas was an oasis on Southbank. Our group of 4 enjoyed the fine food and good service following an early evening concert. Well worth future visits.

    Overall the food was tasteless and cold! Chips soggy, hard to find the zucchini in the fritters, meat balls lacking in flavour every thing else so disappointing. We didn’t have a main, maybe they are more authentic.

    I wouldn’t recommend the Bottomless package, definitely wasn’t worth $140 for two and only two drinks! We gave up with the lack of service and left half an hour early.

    Was an ordinary experience. For a 5 person Mother’s Day lunch, we were firstly delayed to be seated by a good 15mins. We had ordered a bottomless brunch and although the drinks were coming, the food served was no where near enough to feed 5 adults. We had to order another meat platter and I was absolutely not impressed when I had to pay for the additional meat platter on top of the prepaid price prior to booking. It would be foolish for me to return back.

    Delicious traditional greek food. Large portions (standard greek portions) so great value for money. You definitely won't leave hungry. Attentive service. Great atmosphere with traditional greek music being played..just a little loud if your having a conversation. 100% would recommend and will be returning

    Was not happy with my experience at all! Food was way over priced for the amount we received! The pork skewers were still raw, the shaved meat was black / charcoal and just overall would be the worst Greek restaurant I have ever been too! Been told good things about this place, but unfortunately couldn’t disagree more! $800 for 8 people to leave hungry? Will never be returning!

    Food and waiting staff all very good. We had some issues with cancellation policy initially after some of our party could not attend because of illness. Management style not in keeping with the easygoing philoxeni and hospitality Greek establishments are generally well known for, but eventually resolved.
